Many countries have problems in attracting and retaining primary care workers in remote rural areas. This is not restricted to large countries; also small countries experience these problems.

The Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research (NIVEL)  is currently making a background report for WHO based on the literature on rural primary care. The aim of the report is to describe the problem definition, the causes of the problem, the consequences for access and quality of care and possible solutions.
